This September a delegation of our employees traveled to Atlantic City, New Jersey, to attend the 2017 NAEC Annual Convention & Exposition. The association had to postpone the annual event, initially planned for Orlando, due to Hurricane Irma earlier that month.
A vast array of continued education events, industry-related meetings, and a host of exhibits showcasing the latest and most significant elevator technology products and services called for our attention.
Our team enjoyed spending time with industry peers during lunch and dinner, and participated events like a cornhole competition. We appreciate the planning and organizational efforts of the NAEC and look forward to being in Atlantic City again for the September 2018 event.
Earlier that month in Kentucky, Vice President Chuck Sharp and Controller Renny Ross participated in the 2017 Kentucky Construction Career Days. The Kentucky Construction Career Choice Council (K4C) encourages students from all around Kentucky to learn more about the industry and the tools of the trade, and have an opportunity to try them hands-on.
The Shelbyville event received a proclamation from the governor of Kentucky, Matt Bevin, this year. During the two days, students explore their talents, get knowledgeable about career paths and opportunities, learn about technical education and ATC programs, and speak to trade representatives about their line of work to gain insights into their experience.
We are excited for the next generation of apprentices and will create opportunities to grow them into skilled and certified elevator technicians who care to serve you.
